Best Summer Courses in Social Sciences 2019. “From the Idea to the Product” Are you born to be an artist…or an entrepreneur? It is a common preconception that Art and Science belong to parallel universes, despite of the fact that when it comes to decision making and problem solving, the human brain does not process information by algorythms ... The contamination of Art and Science has proved to be successful in many domains over the centuries and it has reached its peak in the Renaissance, that infact has always been a model for innovation, “even better than Silicon Valley today”, in the opinion of researchers such as Eric Weiner.

As the debate about how to classify Management and Entrepreneurship, whether in the field of Sciences or in the field of Arts, has been endless and still left unsolved, and in the meantime generations and generations of people get stuck in this dilemma and sometimes, even lost, when they have to make a decision about their career…this year we will give our contribution to the research on this topic with a Certificate Program created in collaboration with Campus Citta’ del Sapere and Centro Sperimentale di Arte Contemporanea IS.Ca.PI, which aims at providing a full immersion experience in the daily life of the Renaissance Artist....

CIID Summer School Copenhagen 2018 from CIID on Vimeo.

What is this workshop?

The Design for Behaviour & Impact workshop will follow CIID’s learning by doing philosophy and people-centered approach to introduce students to behavioral science through the lens of interaction design. The workshop will investigate how a behavioral research and design process can help interaction designers gain a better understanding of people’s decision-making processes and create products and services with higher rates of adoption and usage.

What will you learn? Better understand how people make decisions by introducing concepts and lessons from the field of behavioral science. Practice strategies for designing products, services, and environments that address the behavioral biases of our users. Evaluate the effectiveness of our solution by measuring the influence (or lack thereof) of our designs on people’s behavior. Recognize implicit biases that we may have as individuals or teams and how they influence the decisions we make in our design process. ... [-]
